Saturday Morning Manna
Another three day weekend here in France, but I will be spending this one in Paris. The last two holidays have been full of adventures and I am ready to sit this one out and chill. The first weekend in May, I decided to take a Solo Momcation. No kids, no husband, no work. I took the train an hour and a half from Paris to Le Perche, Normandy. The train and drive to my hotel was such an easy peaceful ride. I forgot what it felt like to just sit and read a book or stare out the window at all the beautiful colza fields (pictured above).Every mother should try to squeeze in a 3 day weekend away sans the family. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend and don’t forget to read our café chat with the lady behind Sundays in Paris and tune in next week for my big announcement and confession.
